What You Should Consider When Planning a Kitchen

It comes with no surprise that planning a kitchen in your property isn’t easy and there are several factors to take into consideration.

These are the main elements to consider when planning a kitchen fitting:

  • The dimensions of the room
  • If you choose a bespoke kitchen or not
  • The individual elements included in your kitchen
  • Whether your kitchen will be an open plan or not
  • Where your property is located – City or Smaller town

There are other smaller factors to consider such as the cabinet and we will go through them later in this guide

How Much Does a New Kitchen Cost?

All costs considered, the average price of a new kitchen fitting in 2021 is about £6,000 with the most basic outcome starting at £3,000 and the more premium models around £12,000. 

It’s important to say that the most luxurious kitchen fitting can cost much more than that. The average price range for a luxury kitchen in the UK is between £30,000 and £55,000.

It can be challenging to estimate the cost of a new kitchen and to have a transparent price for your budget. This is why our team of experts is trained to offer the most adequate solution to your needs at the best price.

How Much Do New Cabinets Cost?

As the foundation of your kitchen, cabinets hold up form and function in a clean minimalist style. Whether you want to blend your cabinets into the background or make them stand out, there are countless cabinet door finishes available. 

On average, the price per base cabinet is between £20 and £70 while it is £20 to £50 for wall ones.

With a flexible budget, consider premium kitchen units like high-gloss cabinets. These are typically priced between £70 and £130 per unit depending on the material used.

A valid alternative is handless kitchen cabinets that offer a more premium touch. These will cost anything between £100 and £200 per cabinet.

Our team of specialists is able to recommend the best cabinets for your kitchen from standard models to premium ones.

What is a Good Price Range for Kitchen Cabinet Installation?

Cabinets are some of the most expensive parts of a new kitchen, and a full kitchen installation only increases the price. Most UK property owners spend an average of £5,000 to £6,000 on a new kitchen installation. For the cabinet installation alone, you’re looking at around £1,000 on average. 

Can You Install Kitchen Cabinets by Yourself?

When it comes to cabinet refacing, yes, it is possible to install them yourself, most of the time. However, consider that it can be a time-consuming job that is also messy.

If you decide to install kitchen cabinets by yourself, the cost will be £200 to £500 for materials only and another £60 at least for the tools needed.

For this reason, we recommend allowing our experts to install your cabinets as it will be done professionally and costs will not be much different than installing them yourself.

How Much Should you Plan For a Bespoke Kitchen?

A bespoke kitchen can be a great investment for your property. It will improve the use of space as well as adding value to it. Bespoke kitchens are more expensive than budget or regular ones but the cost is justified and we recommend installing one for long-term use or resale purposes.

In the UK, the price of a bespoke kitchen usually starts at £20,000. That being said, costs vary depending on the work that has to be done, the elements and material used, and the design.

Some agencies will offer a lower price starting at £15,000 while others will start at £25,000 or even £30,000.

What is the Cost of a Full Kitchen Renovation?

Renovating a kitchen can highly improve your property and its value. However, there are multiple factors to consider when renovating a kitchen and this is why the cost can be anywhere between £5,000 to £14,000. 

This price varies depending on factors like size and style of cabinets/counters as well as additional work such as plumbing or electrical.

In Scotland, the average cost of a midsized kitchen with decent materials is between £6000 and £9000.

Additional Costs of a Kitchen Fitting

Cabinets are the biggest part of a new kitchen and a potential renovation. That being said, there are additional costs to consider.

First of all, the appliances used to equip a kitchen such as a hob, an oven, a dishwasher, or a fridge can drastically increase the bill.

In addition, the wall tiles and flooring are elements to include in the total budget. While they may seem cheap at first, the costs increase with the size of the area.

Moreover, the lighting and the ventilation installation, as well as the building costs, are needed and these can vary from £25 to £50 per hour.

There are many additional costs depending on your property and these can be explained and calculated by our experts.
